The Film

No one gets to Antarctica by accident. For the few scientific teams who brave this beautiful and silent landscape, it feels like another planet. Their discoveries yield secrets about the Earth’s past and future, and prompt questions about our place in the world. Ice People captures the experience of vastness and claustrophobia, of excitement and waiting, and of a life still set to nature’s rhythm.
